ICONS explores identity and the masks we wear. Through costuming and exaggerated expressions, I toy with the truth of who and what I portray. I deliberately eschew Photoshop in favor of in-camera capture on film. Lurid color bathes the work and heightens the surreality of my subjects while the grain and grit of the photographs make them palpably real.
ICONS is a series of one hundred portraits shot between July 2015 and November 2016. The works are 12"x18" and 20"x30" digital C-prints, each in an edition of 10, printed on metallic gloss paper.
